Not that I have found anyway (I haven't read all the hundreds of pages,
just e-flipped though...). However, all three issues contain modified
code charts for, in total, seven Indic scripts. Apparently they "prepare"
to suggest several name changes (mainly VIRAMA to HALANT, but also others),
as well as a few handfulls of new characters. Some of them duplicates
of already existing characters, some of them precomposed versions of
of already representable characters. Some really strange, like INVISIBLE
LETTER. And the proposals are based on Unicode 3.0, not including the
latest additions to some of the Indic scripts. That may still leave
some justifiable new characters... Though they don't seem to be
specifically pointed out in the "newsletters".
